The thought that terrified me most when I was a teenager was that I would die before I figured out why I was alive in the first place

Dear Reader,

Just yesterday, I messed up as a wife and really lost my cool with my husband. Just last week, I messed up as a mother and didn’t give my daughter the attention she needed and deserved.

Doesn’t it sometimes feel like life is full of mistakes? Guilt and more guilt. Falling and somehow pulling yourself back up. But could there be anything positive about that?

Our Sages teach us...

Raising a child with special needs is indescribable, for both challenging and blessed reasons. Have you ever placed your child on a school bus and dissolved into tears in gripped fear at whether they know where they are going and when they will return? When will we train our inner beings to understand that we can’t possibly know what it is truly like to be the other?

The teacher was surprised, but realized this was an opportune moment to help a child. “Do you think you’re stupid, Joe?” she asked. “No, ma’am,” Joe replied, “but I hated to see you standing there all by yourself!”
